the strictest criteria in the print media industry for the environmental compatibility of consumables. Heidelberg has now tightened these criteria once again and adapted them to the latest international environmental standards. It is also further expanding the range of Saphira Eco products it offers.
Users can now benefit from the Saphira Blanket Pro 200, an eco-friendly blanket that has excellent all-round properties and is particularly suitable for commercial printers looking to make their production operations even more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Working closely with suppliers, Heidelberg has defined and introduced the world's first criteria for environmentally friendly blankets. To define these criteria, the company reviewed the production process and identified and evaluated the green credentials of the substances used.
Heidelberg is also launching the mineral oil-free Saphira Ink Anicolor S100 and H100 ink series for Anicolor technology, thus making Anicolor, which boasts minimal waste and low energy consumption, even more eco-friendly.
In the postpress sector, users will be able to use Saphira Binding Glue PUR 330 NE, the first PUR glue not to release any harmful isocyanates and therefore any substances that pose a health risk to users.
"Green printing has already become standard at numerous companies in industrialized markets. The Saphira Eco product line from Heidelberg offers these companies a range that meets the world's strictest requirements for eco-friendly consumables. It's the perfect choice for customers who attach great importance to their company's green credentials and don't want to compromise on quality when using eco-friendly consumables," says Peter Tix, head of Consumables at Heidelberg.
